thank you for your fast response
so uploading the 96 min (copyright length) version is sober and has nothing to do with the copyright status of the film?

Yes, it has nothing to do with the copyright status. Its just the length of the copies registered and submitted to the USCO and LOC.

After the Wanger contract ended the rights were sold to Universal, who made "Casbah", and responsibility for renewing copyright on "Algiers" rested with them. They failed to renew the copyright on "Algiers" so it fell into the PD. The underlying story was published under a pseudonym, so it had a limited copyright term and is now also in the PD.
